Ernesto Jorge De Gouvea

November 20, 1934 —

It doesn’t take much to make Jorge happy.  That happens every time he has his arm around a beautiful woman and makes her happy dancing with him.

It was twenty years ago that I danced with Jorge for the first time in the milonga Glamour at Boedo and Carlos Calvo.  He invited me for a milonga tanda.  It was probably my first time dancing milonga con traspie.  I was trying so hard to follow him that I made mistakes.  Being present and feeling the music makes all the difference.
